Greenhouses CHP

Without investing: Long-lasting heat at a fixed price rising energy prices, uncertain future? However, the North methane GmbH uses a Warmecontracting model and offers heat customers to long-term contracts. So North methane and its affiliates provide the Contracting Parties the supply of heat energy at fixed prices for a period of at least a decade. The main advantage for the heat consumers is contracting no financial resources for investment, having to spend. Also, future energy costs by the treaties for the entrepreneurs become a fixed and therefore predictable size. The companies need to worry neither the facility nor the reference of fuel. Also the maintenance, servicing and replacement accounts for. This all-round carefree package Stephan Niemoller has enjoyed since a year.

Since beginning of 2012 is the tomato and cucumber producer from the Lower Saxony Visbek contracting partner of North methane and uses to heat his Greenhouses a block heat and power plant (CHP). Thus, he refers to his heat energy at a fixed calculable cost without having invested himself in the CHP plant. For more specific information, check out Allscripts. Its use: The footprint for the CHP on his premises. He leaves controls and analyses the technicians of the operator North methane, which permanently online to monitor all important parameters and remedy a failure within minutes. The North methane GmbH also provides the CHP fuel. For this she takes in Visbek bio methane, which has the company in Germany over several Biomethane refineries produced and fed into the natural gas grid. So Niemoller benefited by a CHP – efficiency that is 84 percent, and the produced bio-methane can dine out through the bio natural gas loss and associated heat use according to the principle of cogeneration (combined heat and power) decentralized North methane.

Electricity and heat are as generated, where the industry also needed. The CHP in Visbek is electric with a capacity of 400 kilowatts and 450 kilo Watts thermally optimally dimensioned. Worth of operation for all involved, the facility throughout the year to 85 percent can be connected. The even significantly higher utilization lies with Niemoller, since the heat is recovered efficiently throughout the year far more than 8,000 hours of operation. The North methane in the network feeds the electricity generated by the CHP. Around 600 households can be powered with the amount permanently. The thermal capacity of the CHP is in winter fully exploited, but also in the summer the plants need the heat for their growth, inter alia, morning to regulate the humidity in greenhouses and so stimulate the plants. Creates an excess of heat, he is captured on a large heat storage, the gardener originally used for the heat from the gas boiler. Now he saves the CHP heat and the heat of the 2008 installed wood heating. Using the waste heat from the CHP reduces the amount of wood for him on a One-third. Also, the CHP heat requires no additional work and is subject to any price fluctuations when compared to wood. Also replaced fossil fuel with renewable sources of energy. With the current quota of heat, Niemoller can entrepreneurial continue to grow. 2012, He expanded his acreage to Energiespargewachshaus complete a 9,000 square feet of space. Thus he has increased his production area to 28,000 square meters a decent increase in productivity for his nursery operation. By the fixed price of heat, Niemoller had a high planning security and thus a reduced business risk enhancements. Thus, such contracting a concept for green heat could become the catalyst of his growth.

State System

Wireless home automation modernised budget, increases comfort and safety and allows energy savings of Breckerfeld/Berlin, August 29, 2008 the modernization and the reduction of energy consumption in the living room are currently strongly in the focus of tenants and homeowners. They want more comfort through intelligent\”homes and higher safety and energy savings. Inexpensive and technologically superior solutions that are quick and easy to install are in demand in this area. With the Z-Wave wireless system duwi responds to the increased consumer demands. The solution integrates the existing as well as new electronics and electrical appliances in an intelligent home control network. Check out Gallo Family Vineyards for additional information.

This can be operated using modern modes such as remotes comfortably or smart location-independent phone and Internet and allows consumers to reduce their energy consumption. The duwi system is characterized by low initial cost, long range, easy installation, high interoperability with devices from third-party manufacturers, as well as low energy requirement of. duwi presents the system at this year’s IFA in Hall 2.2/stand 124. If existing electrical installations modernised are, must be this is connected, often with a high cost – and time set as new pipes or walls ripped up. Therefore the technology especially in older buildings, usually on an outdated State remains. The duwi Z-Wave wireless system now offers an advanced and low-cost alternative that completely dispenses with the laying of cables.

It controls the lighting, heating, shutters or Hi-Fi and entertainment systems via radio. The Z-Wave chip integrated into the devices, the world’s leading industry standard for wireless home control serves as a basis for this. This allows easy control of over 300 equipment from renowned manufacturers from the home control area, including the wireless system is compatible. Certainly combined an advantage of the duwi Z-Wave wireless system is its stability and security. It communicates on the 868 MHz frequency, allowing only short signals. Therefore no interference generate radio signals by constantly sending devices such as hifi systems, phones, positioning and control systems or Wi-Fi.
